A must-read for fans of Agatha Christie's Poirot and Margery Allingham's Campion Mysteries, Lord Peter Wimsey is the immortal amateur sleuth created by Dorothy L Sayers.

Poisoned port . . . pet cats in peril . . . purloined pearls . . .
Lord Peter Wimsey solves the mysteries of the man who was blown into the fourth dimension and the murder in fancy dress. He pursues miscreants across several countries and into unexpected hiding places.
Dorothy L. Sayers' other detective, Montague Egg, encounters a fugitive murderer and uncovers a killer in an Oxford cloister. The travelling salesman extraordinaire solves puzzles with a unique combination of matter-of-fact practicality and brilliant deduction.

Review:

She brought to the detective novel originality, intelligence, energy and wit. (P. D. James)

D. L. Sayers is one of the best detective story writers. (E. C. Bentley Daily Telegraph)

I admire her novels ... she has great fertility of invention, ingenuity and a wonderful eye for detail. (Ruth Rendell)

She combined literary prose with powerful suspense, and it takes a rare talent to achieve that. A truly great storyteller (Minette Walters)
